Evelyn is 36 years old. She lives at home with her parents in the locale Justicia Paz y Vida. Together with her parents, she is awaiting the birth of her first child; she is 8 months pregnant.

Before she had started her business, she had been in the field of teaching, as she is a teacher. She ceased work because of her pregnancy, but she wants to return to her career. In her house she has a spare room, and there she thought to open a business. She had been coming up with many ideas, but she noticed that in her area there are not many businesses that sell fruits, and that in the morning her neighbors buy fruit for their children's snacks at school. Therefore, with a small amount of capital, she opened a small fruit shop, and little by little the townspeople got to know her store.

"In the mornings, I have many sales. My customers buy the fruits because I keep them clean, and also I have all different prices and qualities," she says. She now wants to buy glass cases to show her products and also a refrigerator to keep them fresh.

She is a member of the solidarity group “San Juan Bautista” and this is her first loan with MFP. She is certain that, thanks to this money, she will be able to improve her business, and she is also grateful for the support she has received as a part of her association because the people involved are good people who motivate her to make progress.

Evelyn will invest this money in buying seasonal fruits like pineapples, mandarin oranges, and plantains in large quantities to stock her store.

Antes que comenzará con su negocio se dedicaba a la docencia, pues es profesora. Dejó de laborar por su embarazo, pero desea retomar su carrera. En su casa tenía un cuarto, ahí pensó abrir un negocio, tenía en mente muchas ideas, pero observó que en su zona no existían muchas tiendas que vendieran frutas y en la mañana sus vecinos compran frutas para el refrigerio de sus hijos en la escuela. Por eso, con un capital mínimo, abrió su negocio de venta de frutas, poco a poco los pobladores conocieron su tienda. “Durante las mañanas tengo mucha venta, mis clientes compran las frutas porque los mantengo limpias, además tengo de todos los precios y calidades”, comenta. Ahora desea comprar vitrinas para poder mostrar sus productos, como también un refrigerador para mantenerlos frescos.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “San Juan Bautista” y este es su primer crédito con MFP. Asegura que gracias al dinero mejorará su negocio, agradece también el apoyo que recibe de parte de su asociación, pues las personas que lo integran son personas buenas, que incentivan al progreso.
Evelyn invertirá este dinero en la compra de frutas de temporada como: piña, mandarina y plátanos, en gran cantidad, para surtir su tienda.
